WSJ: Anatomy of a Witch Hunt

Anatomy of a Witch Hunt

The Trump-Russia scare comes from the same playbook as fake cancer scares.

by Holman Jenkins   at the Wall Street Journal:

“Americans won’t be really good citizens until they read Timur Kuran and Cass Sunstein’s 1999 law review article about “availability cascades.”

Their launching point is the process by which we (i.e., human beings) decide to believe what others believe, and judge the truth of a proposition by how familiar it is. Such “availability cascades” drive government policy in good ways and bad, but usually bad. An example the authors analyze in detail is 1989’s fake “Alar” cancer scare that devastated U.S. apple growers.

Which brings us to today’s question: How did it become widely believed in the first half of 2017 that a U.S. president committed treason with Russia?

Consider what has passed for proof in the media. Tens of thousands of Americans have done business with Russia since the collapse of the Soviet Union, not to mention before.

In 2009 President Obama made the first of his two trips to Russia with a gaggle of U.S. business leaders in tow.

Of these many thousands, four were associated with the Trump campaign, and now became evidence of Trump collusion with Russia.

Every president for 75 years has sought improved relations with Russia. That’s what those endless summits were about. Mr. Trump, in his typically bombastic way, also promoted improved relations with Russia. Now this was evidence of collusion.

Russian diplomats live in the U.S. and rub shoulders with countless Americans. Such shoulder-rubbing, if Trump associates were involved, now is proof of crime.

The Alar pesticide scare only took off when activists whom Messrs. Kuran and Sunstein label “availability entrepreneurs” peddled deceptive claims to a credulous “60 Minutes.” We would probably not be having this Russia discussion today if not for the so-called Trump dossier alleging improbable, lurid connections between Donald Trump and the Kremlin.

It had no provenance that anyone was bound to respect or rely upon. Its alleged author, a retired British agent named Christopher Steele, supposedly had Russian intelligence sources, but why would Russian intelligence blow the cover of their blackmail agent Mr. Trump whom they presumably so carefully and expensively cultivated? They wouldn’t.

Yet recall the litany of Rep. Adam Schiff, who declared in a House Intelligence Committee hearing: “Is it possible that all of these events and reports are completely unrelated and nothing more than an entirely unhappy coincidence?”

His litany actually consisted of innocuous, incidental and routine Trump associations interspersed with claims from the Trump dossier to make the innocuous, incidental and routine seem nefarious.

Maybe Mr. Schiff is a cynic, or maybe Harvard Law sent him back into the world with the same skull full of mush with which he arrived. But ever since, every faulty or incomplete recollection of a meeting with a Russian has been promoted in the media as proof of treason by Trump associates.

The president’s obvious irritation with being called a traitor is proof that he is a traitor.

Whether the Russia incubus did more harm to Mr. Trump’s vote or Hillary’s vote during the election is impossible to know. But Mr. Trump won, so under the hindsight fallacy his victory is now proof that he conspired with Russia.

The term “availability bias” originated in the work of Amos Tversky and Daniel Kahneman, whose Nobel Prize-winning research gave birth to the field of behavioral economics.

Mr. Kahneman went on to write 2011’s indispensable “Thinking, Fast and Slow,” and I’m here to tell you that journalists especially pride themselves on their fast thinking—the kind that mistakes randomness for pattern, confuses correlation with causation, and gives excessive rein to emotional and cognitive biases.

Notice I don’t say reporters and editors are so dumb they can’t free themselves from such errors. I say that such errors are their stock in trade.

The original allegory of fast thinking, of course, is the old folklore tale, “the emperor’s new clothes.” In his 1922 book “Public Opinion,” Walter Lippmann explained how journalists reduce complex, novel realities to off-the-shelf “stereotypes.”

Or as a colleague once said of Stalin, “[He] tries to force life into a ready-made framework. The more life resists . . . the more forcefully he mangles and breaks it.”

Come to think of it, that’s not a bad way of describing how the D.C. anthill has reacted to the unexpected, exotic, high-risk, possibly providential experiment of the Trump presidency.

We mean every descriptor. His very unsuitability, the mood of the American public that elected him, the obscure impasse of American politics that brought him to power—all these signs deserve more respect than they’re getting.

His Torquemadas don’t and can’t know whether our democracy, in the improbable Mr. Trump, found a lever to move us forward, but there’s something repugnant in their desire not to find out.”

Comment:   The above Wall Street Journal article is a foreign language to about 99.3% of today’s American “adults” under the age of 50.  Truth, words, places, people, actions have become foreign to their modern  leftist equalized fascistic Democrat Party propaganda to force upon America the most important right….to be equally ignorant and powerless to what today’s “Democrats” are cooking up for the nation’s future.

Comey’s Corrupt FBI War Against President Trump?

Trump’s Way Out of the Progressive Labyrinth

by Victor Davis Hanson at American Greatness

“In every single week of the Trump presidency, the investigators and attorneys of FBI Director James Comey or, subsequently, of special counsel Robert Mueller, have leaked information that President Donald Trump was under investigation for either colluding with the Russians or obstructing justice—allegations so far without any substantiating evidence.

In the case of Comey, we now know that his office or sympathetic third-parties leaked to the press false stories that Trump was under FBI investigation at precisely the time that the careerist Comey was privately reassuring the president himself that he was in fact not being investigated.

The appointment of Mueller was a concession to opposition demands that Trump appoint a Lawrence Walsh-type Special Prosecutor. The Comey-Mueller investigations and leaks occur simultaneously with House Intelligence member Adam Schiff’s passive-aggressive and often pompous announcements of evidence of Russian collusion—including raising the specter of a Grand Jury investigation—that are never followed by any evidence.

Since January 2017, the Congress ceased being a legislative body. It is now a Star-chamber court determined to decapitate the presidency.

Never in the history of the republic have there been so many legislative and political simultaneous efforts to 1) sabotage the Electoral College, 2) sue to overturn the presidential vote in key swing states, 3) boycott the Inauguration, 4) systematically block presidential appointments, 5) surveille, unmask, and leak classified or privileged information about the elected president, 6) nullify federal law at the state and local level, 7) sue to remove the president by invoking the Emoluments Clause, 8) declare Trump unfit under the 25th Amendments, 9) demand recusals from his top aides, 10) cherry-pick sympathetic judges to block presidential executive orders, 11) have a prior administration’s residual appointees subvert their successor, and 12) promise impending impeachment……..”   There’s more to read below:

Killing Trump in the Park for Charity

Establishment fixtures at Fox news this evening reviewed the sins between leftist  murderers, anti anything-American rioters, university staff deviates, gangsters, invaders, Pelosi Ditzies, phony investigations, and Obama’s hate America racists all  of  the violent, corrupt revolutionary LEFT with  Donald J. Trump’s tweets.

Both sides  are supposedly  equally responsible for the life threatening attacks  on America culminating in yesterday’s Bernie Sanders’ political gangster attack upon Republican Congressmen preparing for their traditional annual baseball game against their Democrat rivals.   Let’s all get into bed together was their  general modern verbage to accept  the nine year Obama led illegal Sanctuary Cities dictatorship of some twenty million   ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS,  to perpetuate and hurry up their sexist, racist, leftist, anti democratic, antiJudeoChristian  revolution against our once democratic- republic America financed by BIGGEST BIG BUSINESS, even the very Jewish kind by the way, if truth were allowed to be told.

Opponents were called bigots or worse and told to shut up or the Obamaland will shove a riot down our traditional peaceful American necks.   The criminal Hillary, we were told…..the wealthy, crooked one, would carry out Obamaland’s destiny to begin her era to sabotage  free expression in  the country, beginning January 20, 2017.  The New York Times and Washington Post empires reported so.

And then there arose Our Donald.   By corruption with whatever necessary,  these Leftists deviates of the Democrat Party were no going to allow that to happen.  They own the schools, the press, television news, Biggest Business, blacks, illegal immigrants, and two thirds of the American Jewish population…..the unsynogogued Charles Schumer kind…..How could….did….Queen Hillary lose her fixed election?

“TRUMP DID IT!!    “KILL HIM!”….BUT DON’T USE THE “K” WORD!  BE ARTFUL….TEACH SHAKESPEARE…..GO CLASSIC, BECOME ‘UNIVERSITY’ IN THE PARK!

DON’T LET HIM BECOME PRESIDENT!  HE’LL MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!  Just Don’t Let Him Become President! NO MATTER WHAT YOU DO!

Fox Guru, Charles Krauthammer, suggests Donald J. Trump, as President,  is equal  in blame for  the current  contemporary war waged by Democrats in the whole, and Republicans by the half……  because?   the  President tweets!

Mark Waldeland sent the following Shakepeare note regarding a current  New York City in-the-park production of the stage  murder of American President, Donald J. Trump to raise funds for  charity.   Mr. Waldeland is a retired high school English teacher.  He knows great literature when he reads it.

Do get to know your American ObamalingLeftist hateAmerica killertypes  better.   The American press and university program so many of them.

Dem’s Fascist Attempts to Kill Donald and His Republicans Was, Is Only a Matter of Time

Month after month since the American Left’s loss of Crooked Hillary’s presidency, these losers have conducted a conspiritorial war, a threatening war, a contrived war by this now  leftist party’s control of the nation’s press, its television news, the nation’s educational and ‘entertainment’ industries,  black racists and feminazi fanatics against Donald J. Trump, the 45th American President.

Mock assassinations, murders, beatings, imprisonments, James Comey’s crowd’s actions have become entertainment  for our once civilized American life.   College student females learn to return to thumb sucking in their school arranged ‘safe’ zones…..all because Donald J. Trump defeated Crooked Hillary in last November’s American Presidential election.

The extreme among the left have been encouraging the disappearance of Our Donald, including the corrupt former FBI Director, James Comey.  His buddy of the below, Lawyer Mueller, and  big time donors to the Democrat Party will be conducting a new war against the President in order to relieve him of his presidential duties for the first fascist revolution in American history.

A leftist lone wolf Bernie Sanders lover shot to murder as many Republican Congessmen as possible this morning in Alexandria, Virginia.   These more athletic GOPers  were warming up for tomorrow’s baseball battle against the Congress’ more athletic Democrats,  a fellow American activity for decades and decades before the Obamaling fascistic invasion of the White House and Congress.

It was only a matter of time when the fake news folks at CNN, MSNBC, NBC, PBS, and the rest, along with the coast to coast hate and propaganda of the Washington Post and New York Times  news Industry of fake news tales and lies  against conservatives in general, and President Trump in particular, UNTIL REAL KILLING REPUBLICANS WOULD BEGIN.

Alexandria, Virginia, early morning baseball practice for Congress’s GOP…..JUST THE BEGINNING?   please read the following:

Obama’s Woman Freed From Life Sentence Back in Prison Again

America’s president “Obama” arranged somewhere in the neighborhood of  15,000,000 illegals to vote in American Sanctuary Cities  to establish a  one party  Leftism’s  new fascist way for America.

His legacy prevails despite the election of the gifted, America-loving Donald J. Trump last November, 2016 with the aid of rogue Republicans favoring Wisconsin’s Paul Ryan, “controller” of the House of Representatives.

The strange antiAmerican Barack Hussein, pardoned a number of criminals of their crimes from their prison sentences.  Do read below about a Texas gal Obama freed from a life sentence who’s back in prison again:

Leftist Alan Dershowitz Turns Honest for a Change?

I remember Attorney Alan Dershowitz  as a leftist extremist from many yesterdays with a foul temper who, over the decades, managed to manipulate the American Civil Liberties Union into an agency to stifle religious speech with the advancement of the freedom of scenes and noises to conquer and replaced the civil.

He worshiped his “I” counts for posterity then when he was never known for anything conservative.  I wonder what he now eats for breakfast.  Oatmeal might have caused it…..But then, where would this mouthy Dershowitz heat  his oats?   Please read below regarding his today’s claim to ‘righteousness’.

I’m glad he is right for a change….Aren’t you?   Perhaps he’s gaining a number of important perspectives of life old age offers when one gets old enough to be OLD.

Welcome, Alan!

Watch Fired FBI Director Comey’s Testimony Here

I didn’t have an opportunity to watch the political  leftist arranged television event today starring former FBI director, James Comey…..the one newly elected President Donald J. Trump fired recently…..the one Democrats hated for sniping publicly about one of countless Hillary crimes while running for the American Presidency, the one she and all of her devoted racists and feminists felt she deserved for being Hillary.

I had to go to work.

On my way to work, and until 11AM I caught the event on radio.

Our American deviates in Washington, the  Axis concocted by Hillary sore losers,  Chas  Schumer deviates, you know the creepier Al Franken types, the New York Times, Washington Post, CNN, CBS, NBC, MNBC and nearly all of the rest of the media including Fox on a bad day;   the new leftier klutzes causing American President Donald J. Trump trouble in Washington.  I follow American national politics closely…and have so since the Dewey-Truman presidential campaign in 1948.  (It sure beats going to the horse races.)

I admit I love our American 45th President.   I love him for his obvious traits and gifts…and his honesty according to what he sees and senses.  He loves his country.  He sees it, knows it is in financial and moral decay.

We haven’t had a really gifted and astute, uplifting  President during  my life with the exception of  Harry S. Truman, John F. Kennedy,  and Ronald Reagan.  Worse, the country was profoundly struck down by American hater, racist, feminist, open borders for illegal voters foreigner Barack Hussein Obama for the past eight years of national disorder and decline.

Best of all, Donald J. Trump is an American non-politician.   He’s “Ugely” American bright….and the fascist-feminists leftist hounds controlling  our today’s  education world hate him  and all the rest of us over age 60 as well who aren’t drugged by the glory of ignorance, atheism,  and meaningless unemployment.

THE COMEY PERFORMANCE

Mr. Comey seemed a good man….a gentle man…..or perhaps not quite a man, but rather a boy scout determined to do good by obeying Obama’s urban  scoutmasters……a  2017 man, that is, not quite a man at all.   Gentle, plotting, polite, shy-pretending, a person who loved his job station in life…..an almost man, a bureaucrat who wanted to do good to honor his name….an almost man who had worked in the political maneuvering world all of his adult life, who tried to do good so others would know him as good.

And then along comes businessman, Donald J. Trump winning a presidential election beating the  government establishment, the Hillary establishment, the newsprint establishment, the television news establishment, the leftist college urchins without knowledge and careers, countless  programmed black racists, 12,000,000 illegal voting immigrants….some less illegal than others whose arrivals were all seen by leftist fascists as  votes for their inevitable forever dictatorship  future.

Business man Trump is hated by countless Republicans as well….news industry people.   His  nose isn’t sufficiently perfect for the manikin they could display as their toady.   Mr. Trump reeks leadership.  He builds towers, golf courses, skating rinks.  He likes people.  He is a Republican who  loves his country and is fed up with those GOPers who have colluded with   leftist leaches draining our America of blood for more than a decade in  the name of the  gods of global warming, sanctuary cities,  brainless screamy coeds, and Windy City urban murderers.

Be sure to enjoy this spectacle presented below….how these Democrat vermin and their Republican compatriots welcomed President Donald J. Trump to the 45th presidency of these “United” states of America to solve our nation’s countless problems…..

GOD BLESS PRESIDENT DONALD J. TRUMP and Marco Rubio!
